Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum

President Abraham Lincoln may finally receive his just due after the completion of the Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois in 2004. For now, visitors can explore this Web site, which features information about the Library (which was dedicated on November 18, 2002), the Museum (which will be finished in 2004), and President Lincoln himself. Designed and maintained by the State of Illinois and the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, the site contains sections devoted to the architecture of the entire 115 million dollar complex, including floor plans and general information about the contents of both buildings. Young people will be delighted by the Kids Page, which is dedicated to providing educational and entertaining material about Lincoln's family, the Lincoln Penny campaign, and of course selections from President Lincoln's legendary wit. For educators, there are links to the Illinois History Teacher Magazine, a Lincoln chronology, and a great section on quotes wrongly attributed to President Lincoln.
